are a loyal democrat and strong supporter of president obama. which is more disturbing to you? president obama knowing that merkel's phone was tapped and not being forthright or him not knowing? which isn't reassuring either. >> well, i mean, either way you have it, it is a problem for the united states. it is a problem for the president's relationship with the chancellor if this turns out to be accurate. there's no good answer because there is no good outcome here either way. that's part of the reason why i think we need a better disclosure if indeed between didn't get it here and we need to make sure that whenever there is the potential that this kind of blowback were notified and our programs at home and overseas as the president has said are consistent with our values. >> congressman adam schiff, democrat of california, thank you so much for your time. we appreciate it. >> thanks. >> coming up, is a democratic staffer defended obama care and even as voters screamed in her face, now she is the frustrated one. plus, he likes smart, nerdy stuff. one of his former top aides shows insight into

can democrats show their constituents that obama care really isn't something to run away from? >> well, i think they're taking an honest approach to oversight and interested in getting answers and they want to see this website succeed and they want to see health care succeed and they want to see millions and millions of americans insured, which would be a very, very good thing. i think people like paul ryan need to be concerned too about how they're coming out looking after this. i think the idea of paul ryan sitting there concerned that somebody might think there's a subsidy out there that isn't for them, this is the same person that was interested in keeping the government shut down in an effort to repeal obama care completely. it's interesting that this is now his number one concern. >> so i'm just getting this hot note saying that senator lamar alexander, the senior republican on the senate health committee is asking that it's time for the president to ask secretary of health and human services to resign in reference to kathleen sebelius. again, today's hearing is a precursor to ka

'll be standing against the snap cuts that will be coming on november 1. through mr. obama's and the democratic congress or caucus support we passed stimulus that gave more food money to those who are in need. why couldn't we keep that going? simply to keep that going. but on november 1, because we have not acted, this congress will shut down the food for those who have gotten just a little bit to feed their family. so i am hoping that when they go to conference, what will be on their mind is their pledging allegiance to the flag of the united states of america, not to the 1%, but the 99% and we will come back out of this economy and there will not be a tale two of americas. but it will be one america where everyone has an opportunity and that's the model of america, united, investment into more than just a few people, but to a lot of people, giving them the opportunity to build this economy. i thank the gentleman for yielding and i thank my constituents in houston for understanding and recognizing that we must work together to build a better houston, a better texas and a better america. i yiel
what nbc news investigative correspondent lisa myers has been reporting, the obama administration and democrats, some, knew that under the affordable health care act, some americans who buy their own health insurance would not be able to keep the plans they currently have. congressman hoyer said, we knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage. when asked about the president's past statements that after the affordable health care act became law that people would be able to keep existing health insurance, congressman hoyer said, i think preciseness would have been better. i don't think the message was wrong. i think the message was accurate. lisa myers, found buried in the 2010 language of the law, an estimate that because of normal turnover, normal turnover in the individual insurance market, 40 to 67% of customers will not be able to keep their policy. developments comes as the head of the government agency in charge of the health the website has been grilled for hours. there have bee

legislature as now senator jamie eldridge, a democrat, testified that he believes they should implement a universal medicare plan in massachusetts. that's single payer. that's what many people believe obama care would lead to on the federal level. what say you? >> well, it's funny. he's a great guy. he voted for romney care, supports obama care. then you do the math and he says all i wanted was single payer in the first place. that's what obama care supporters default to. they are watching the system collapse and the math doesn't work. in massachusetts we are the most expensive state in the country. want to be more expensive? be like us. it's 60 to 120 days for your first doctor visit. took me 60 days for my first appointment. it's so bad we have had three tax hikes since romneycare was implemented because the cost of state government health care exploding. 25 cents on the state dollar covered medical for us when romneycare passed. now it's more than 40 cents of every dollar the state collects paid out to romneycare. the system is breaking. >> the argument against it, we discussed it la

obama and democrats passed a law years ago that is something that the american people do not want and were misled into. premiums are skyrocketing and most -- and some insurers are kicking people off their plan that they were on entirely. mr. speaker, republicans have a plan for the future, and it allows people to have their own doctor, their own insurance company and to make their own decisions. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from colorado seek recognition? >> to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman from colorado is recognized for one minute. mr. perlmutter: thank you, mr. speaker. good afternoon. as a member of the house sustainible energy and environmental coalition, i rise today to recognize the one-year anniversary of superstorm sandy and remember those who tragically lost their lives as well as those continuing to rebuild from the destruction. my constituents in colorado understand the pain that comes with extreme weather events. having
have a democrat in the white house. president obama won't be signing that bill soon. let me ask you about something else that's been getting attention in the news. that's you're speaking out on what you call the war against christians. this various countries in this world and in particular muslim-dominated countries. we have seen more violence against christians in egypt. there was a story today out of iran with 80 lashes for four christians. they had to be lashed for drinking wine at communion. you have been outspoken saying the administration isn't doing enough to call attention to it. what would you have them do? >> about a month ago, a christian village in syria was overrun and a young man was told to convert or die. he said, i am a christian. if you must kill me for being a christian, do it. these were his last words. the president needs to speak out about this. we need to not gloss over that there is a religious component to this. since 9/11 we have been apologizing and saying, oh, this isn't the islamic religion. it's not all of islam. it's a minority, but it is not one in a
that president obama's is to the base of progressives and the democratic party. >> i agree. >> so cruz is operating -- cruz is fighting on the other team's turf at this point. >> yeah. but i tell you, real quick here david. i want you to finish up. if you're a minority in this country, you can hear cruz. if you have doubts like a lot of people do about their religion, if you have any kind of secular attitudes or if you have any liberal progressive thoughts or you're realistic about the need for social security, medicare, and civil rights don't you see this guy is the real enemy? somebody that could really be dangerous. >> it all depends on how big the other side is, the group he's playing to. his father believes in dominion christianity. that these people have been anointed to take over. and ted cruz has that sort of fervor. he does seem to believe he's somewhat of a prophet. and to what degree he can expand that appeal beyond the people who go to the megachurches where his dad and people like him are popular remains to be seen. but we do see in the republican party over the last four
. that speaks for itself. exit question. does the rollout of obama care vindicate the gop's demand for delay? yes or no? >> not only that. five democratic senators who will go for it, will get a delay and vindicate the tea party's second position. >> they put in a six-week delay. already time built in, no penalizing, no mandate to pay the penalty until after march. it's only october. there is time here. take a deep breath, pat. and look at some of the coverage around the country and there are a lot of positive stories in every state of people who are coming on to this exchange and grateful that insurance is available to them. >> technology is not president obama's long suit. >> i disagree. >> the same thing happened with solyndra. >> his campaign was incredible. >> there you are. politics, right? >> yeah, obama or politics? >> how can they have failed there with their major program? >> contractors and it's a huge undertaking. >> look, whatever it is, you can say how many contractors there are. it is an for this administration because the way they presented this, nobody anticipated
, actually, over the past four years, during the current administration, the obama administration and under democrat control here the last four years, we have passed all of one appropriation bill on time. that's one out of 48 that was done on time. it was a milcon bill about 2011, as i call. wrong is better with a deadline. again, you see this with the debt limit and with what we just went through these last few weeks. we can do better. this legislation would keep the impetus for congress to act without including the threat of another costly and destructive shutdown. i think it's a good idea. it's one that is already bipartisan, should be adopted by both sides. we had a vote on it earlier this year, it got nearly half of this chamber. i hope others will take a look at it. i think, particularly with what we have just gone through, it's something that our constituents would think would make a lot of sense. i hope it gets the support that it deserves in this body. of course, in addition to dealing with the government shutdown in this budget conference that we are meeting on this week, we also

's one-time colleagues, former president clinton, president obama, and speaker john boehner remembered the washington state democrat as a statesman with a sense of humor, and someone who frequently crossed party lines. here's the president. >> a leader grounded in decency, in principle, he brought honor to himself, to his family, and to this house. and he did all these things a public servant should do and, frankly, did many of them better than the rest. but it was his sense of fairness his port in a storm bearing that will always stand out for me. it's how he held this institution together at a very difficult time. >> when he assumed his speakership he brought to it a scholar's depth of understanding and a disciple's passion. he led the house with fairness and comedy, a style of leadership we haven't seen and we recently have looked for it but we have not seen what tom was able to do with both sides. >> tom and i weren't on the same side on most issues. his faith in government was shall i say a little more robust than mine. but we shared a deep respect for the institution and a belief
for everybody in america. and get the insurance companies out of it. and i think, i think, mr. obama, i really hope you reconsider this because in the election if this thing goes the way it's going, we're going to hurt the democrats a lot. let's get on single pair and let people understand what it's about and stop arguing with the insurance companies. go ahead. >> really? >> yeah. >> well, if that's the plan, if you think that works great, any other industries you want to wipe out arbitrarily because you think the government can do a better job? when they've never been able to do a single industry right. >> how about medicare? >> medicare is good. $200 billion in waste and fraud a year is good. more of that? i can't. >> i think that obama care is what run into a real difficulty with medicare when the cuts to doctors go through and gets back to eric's point of who is going to be willing to be a medicare doctor anymore. i think that there's only one thing worse than the companies being in charge. and that's the government being in charge. >> uh-huh. >> yeah. i mean, you are critical of obama car
thousands of californians are discovering that they are getting sticker shock. one democratic strategist said we're screwed. what is the political fallout? >> thankfully, ted cruz has branded the republican party as the anti-obama care party. that's going to help us next year. i would recommend if this proceeds as it looks like it is going to where the democrats have to ask for a delay now, exactly what they shut the government down for, lo those weeks ago, ted cruz and mike lee and the house republicans should do the same thing to a delay bill. attach the defund. now it's not a question of shutting down the government. now it's not a question of the debt ceiling. they can't get it up and running. they have to pass a delay bill. >> there is almost an open warfare against good conservatives. in utah they are going to primary mike lee. if they do -- >> oh! >> you didn't hear? >> no. >> establishment guys are targeting tea party members. >> the one thing you are supposed to depend on the establishment as we refer to it they are supposed to not primary our own guys. usually they are upset ab
